Nicodemus and other Black Cats

Looking for a tall, dark, and handsome man in your life? Look no further than 2 year old NICODEMUS! He is one of many wonderful black cats available for adoption. Nicodemus (pictured above) was found as a stray but he looks like he has noble lineage. Check out the neat flecks of brown in his big gold eyes. He is very handsome and loving. This boy likes affection. He'll be a fantastic addition to any loving home. Black cats are often overlooked and the last to be adopted. But yet, they are on a whole, very personable and loving. GEPPETTO is a special needs black cat. He looks like a character but he really is a mellow fellow. This black and white tuxedo cat is 3 years old and friendly and affectionate. He first came to the shelter in 2012 and has yet to find his forever home. He is a diabetic and needs a home where he can be more closely monitored and can get his medications provided regularly and on an optimal schedule. Are up to the challenge? And right now we have an abundance of black and white Tuxedo cats with interesting markings and great personalities. Please check out the pictures of all these cats under our listing of available cats. Please consider adding a black cat or two to your family! You won't regret it.


The SPCA is has some wonderful cats that have been there for a long time (over a year in some cases). There are many adult cats who are loving, laid back felines ready to share their lives with you. They are house-trained cats who are well settled and aren't about to climb your drapes or terrorize your dog. Kittens certainly are sweet but adopting an adult has many advantages. You know what you are getting since their personalities are already formed and ready for you to see. All cats are neutered and ready for great homes. Check out their pictures on the website and please come in and meet them for yourself.


In these tough economic times, more and more family pets are ending up in shelters. Please help the SPCA help make their stay here as pleasant as possible with donations of the following:
*Canned cat and dog food
*Kuranda beds
*fleece blankets
*kitten chow
*dog and cat toys

Who We Are The Delaware SPCA is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to the elimination of animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing services for people and their companion animals since 1873. We do not receive state or county funding, and there is no national SPCA. We rely solely on local donations to carry on our work for the animals.The original building that houses the DE SPCA - Sussex Chapter was built in 1973. Donations are gratefully accepted!

Adopting a friend

All dog and cat adoptions through the Delaware SPCA include neutering, microchipping, a free wellness exam through a participating veterinarian and initial distemper and rabies shots. Cats are given a feline leukemia test and dogs over six months of age are given a heartworm test prior to adoption. Adoption fees for dogs and puppies 6 months of age and up is $100 and up, while young puppies are $150 and up. Kittens and cats up to 2 years of age are $75, while cats over 2 are only $50. All animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Spaying or neutering your pet through a veterinarian can cost hundreds of dollars. So not only are you giving a deserving animal a loving home and getting neutering and microchipping services at a fraction of what it would cost elsewhere - you are also supporting the Delaware SPCA and its mission of preventing cruelty to our four-legged friends.
